Please Donate Blood!

I don't know if you know this about me, but six years ago, I was rushed to the hospital. I lost so much blood that I needed six units. I would not have survived without blood donors, who I consider heroes. You are amazing for donating blood, if you ask me! :) Then, in 2012, it happened again. Unfortunately, I don't know if or when I'll need blood again. You can be a hero for others like me who never thought they’d need to rely on blood donations. Save the day. Donate blood with BloodCenter of Wisconsin. Just call 877-BE-A-HERO or visit www.bcw.edu/appt

STOP Calling Me!

So this is my first week back at work and I'm slowly getting adjusted to the hours after being on maternity leave for 8 weeks....and everyone keeps calling me at the worst times!  Oh well...I guess I will live but it helps that I get to use my phone as much as I want and not have to worry about going over on minutes or paying extra fees.  That's all thanks to my Cricket Wireless phone where EVERYTHING is UNLMITED!  It's awesome because I not only get unlimited talk and text, but I also get unlimited data and MUSIC.  Try finding that deal somewhere else....

So get into a store today and get hooked up!  You know you wanna try the Samsung S4 and they've got it for you....

Hudson is Doing Great!

Well, he’s about 3 weeks old now and Hudson Michael is doing great!  I posted a pic of him below so you could see how happy he is…or should I say relaxed??  He truly is a great baby and I’m sure it had something to do with his smooth delivery at the Aurora Women’s Pavilion on September 4th

We had a great stay and everyone there was great.  Now that we are home I kinda miss all the attention I got from the nurses…maybe I should have another now?  KIDDING! 

Okay, I’m off to take care of my little buddy and his big brother, Owen, who is absolutely in love with him.  If you are pregnant or thinking of having a baby, make sure you have your baby with Aurora!  They deliver the most babies in the state!

And while you are at it, you can get your cell phone plan which includes unlimited text, talk, music and data!  Oh…and as always NO CONTRACT!  Enjoy!

Ouch!

So I had to swing by the Women's Pavillion in West Allis yesterday(where I'm having the baby) to get an IV of iron injected because my iron is so low and I'm about to have this baby any day now!  I have to admit...it wasn't the most fun experience ever, but at least they are helping me get as healthy as possible for baby!

Baby Scare!

I had a bit of a baby scare yesterday but the good news is that everything turned out okay!  I had been monitoring my blood pressure at home to make sure it was okay, and it seemed a little high yesterday.  So, I did what I was supposed to do and called my doctor.  She sent me into the Aurora Women’s Pavillion in West Allis(where I’m scheduled to have the baby in a 3 weeks!) and I spent a few hours there but luckily got to go home because everything was okay and baby looked great! 

It’s moments like those that I’m glad I’m having the baby at Aurora and know that they are always there to provide me with the best care if something is off.  I was happy to get discharged and go home, but it was also a reminder that I have a baby coming soon(yeah!) and the staff is so wonderful there that I have no worries about how my experience will go. 

To find the aurora doctor that is right for you, go to www.aurora.org/ob

I have TWO doctor appointments this week.  One is tomorrow to do a non-stress test---and then another ultrasound on Friday.  I will be sure to keep you updated!  Until next time….

Loved It!

I LOVED seeing Nync back together last night at the VMA's, and I really think they should go back on tour!  Of course, it probably won't happen because Justin Timberlake is way too successful on his own to go back now, but it was a nice treat anyway.  Also, Miley Cyrus completely freaked me out. She was a very nice gal when I met her, but she needs to keep her tongue in her mouth!  It was so hard to watch....completely uncomfortable!

Only a few weeks to go!

Well, I’m 35 weeks pregnant now.  I can’t say enough how quickly this pregnancy is going for me!  It does help that I have some of the best care in the business.  I am having my baby boy at the Aurora Women’s Pavillion in West Allis---this is the same place I had Owen almost two years ago!
 
I loved it there because I was so scared and the staff was so wonderful with me.  Not only are the rooms there AMAZING, but the care is top notch.  Now that the birth of the second one is getting close, I am getting nervous again but I am so relieved to know that I will be well taken care of there. 
 
I had another doctor appointment this week and everything looked great!
 
I also love it that The Aurora Women’s Pavilion and Aurora Sinai Medical Center have the highest level of Neonatal Intensive Care Services for the Milwaukee metro area.  Did you know that??  You always want the best care for your baby and you will get it with Aurora. 
 
To get an aurora doctor that’s right for you, just go to www.aurora.org/ob
 
Talk to you next week when I’m 36 WEEKS!!

Whatever Dude

So Ryan Braun released his apology statement yesterday.  How lovely.  You know what would have been even more awesome?  If he had sent me a text apologizing.  Or maybe just told someone to tell me.  Even better.

Who comes out and speaks to the public to DENY anything and then apologizes with a letter?  If you were able to speak to the press to deny it, you should have the guts to speak to the press to admit you lied.  OH well.  I'm still gonna hit up Brewer games.  What kind of Milwaukee girl would I be if I didn't??!

34 Weeks Pregnant!

Hey guys!  Well, I’m 34 weeks pregnant now and I am so ready to have this baby!  Saw my doctor on Tuesday and luckily my blood pressure is looking good and I hope to keep it that way.  However, if for some reason this baby comes extra early, I’m so happy I’m having it at the Aurora Women’s Pavilion in West Allis.  Mainly because the Aurora Women’s Pavilion and Aurora Sinai Medical Center have the highest level of Neonatal Intensive Care Services for the Milwaukee metro area.  Did you know that??

I had Owen there, my first one, and I absolutely loved it…You want the best? Go to Aurora.

Aurora delivers more babies than any other health system in the state. To find an Aurora doctor for your pregnancy, visit: www.aurora.org/ob

You Can't Force Me Into A Contract!

Summer is such a busy time of year and I feel like I’m on my phone all the time….which is why I chose to have a Cricket Wireless phone.  It totally works out for me because I am on the phone ALL the time and Cricket gives me UNLIMITED talk, text, music and data on my plan.  Nobody else offers me that. 

I also hate that these cell phone companies that try to force me into a contract.  Well, Cricket doesn’t do that!  So, do the smart thing today and head into a Cricket Wireless store and stop being had by all those other companies!

6 Weeks Until Baby!

Hey!  Did you realize that I am 33 weeks already!?  I can't believe this little baby is going to be here soon!  I'm super excited and I secretly wish he would come early...shhhhh!  Don't tell anyone! 

I had Owen at the Aurora Women's Pavillion in West Allis and I'm really excited to have my next one there. I KNOW how scary it can be to have a baby and have no idea what you are doing.  The staff at Aurora was so amazing and made me feel super comfortable.  That is why I have chosen to go back there for my next one! 

And by the way.....did you know that Aurora delivers MORE babies than ANY other health system in the state?  To find an Aurora doctor for your pregnancy, visit: http://bit.ly/11P6Vhg

It Freaked Me Out!

I have been talking on the phone so much this month that the other day I got really scared….did I go over my minutes??  Well, then it occurred to me…NOPE!!  That’s impossible!  I have unlimited EVERYTHING on my Cricket phone.  Sometimes I still catch myself forgetting that.

That is definitely one of the reasons I love my phone---because I have unlimited talk, text, data AND music.  It’s such a great deal.  I never had that anywhere else.  OH…and even better news if you wanna get your Cricket phone today and start making smart decisions…because RIGHT NOW you can get the Samsung S4 for only $25 down and no contract! 

That is one of my other favorite features…NO CONTRACT!  Who else does that?  Yea, keep thinking….you will be here awhile.  J

Listen UP!

Did ya know that you are probably spending TWICE as much as you should on your cell phone plan?  Take it from me…I know a good deal and Cricket Wireless is HALF the price of the other cell phone carriers. Trust me. 
 
For only $45 a month you can get unlimited talk, text, music AND data.  Just swing into a Cricket Wireless store today and they will  get you all hooked up. 
 
OH…and there is NO contract!  Isn’t it annoying you get stuck with a long contract everywhere else??  What happens if you don’t even like it?  Cricket won’t do that to you. 
 
One more thing you should probably know…for a limited time you can get $200 of a Samsung Galaxy phone when you sign up and enroll in Auto bill pay.  That even includes the S4!

Sad Stuff

I was really saddened to hear of the news of Cory Monteith's sudden death over the weekend.  I really loved Glee and I think it was one of the best shows on TV.  Not only that, but it really had a great message...which was to be proud of yourself no matter who you are.  As I was looking through some old pictures, I found this pic of Cory Monteith when I went to see the Glee tour in Chicago a few years ago.  RIP Cory.

This Thing Rocks!

So you always hear me talk about my Cricket Wireless phone on the radio but I gotta tell you...I really love this thing!  You know I love a good deal and Cricket just keeps continuing to provide that.

I mean seriously...where else can you get a cell phone plan with NO CONTRACT??  Not only that but where else can you get an entire plan...including unlimited text, talk, internet AND music for only $45 a month?  It's a pretty sick deal.

So go check it out today and stop getting ripped off by other companies!

P.S.  Right now if you switch to Cricket you can get $200 off any Samsung Galaxy phone(including the S4)....which is pretty awesome!

Summerfest Toes?

I went and got a pedicure last week with my mom who was visiting and I decided to go a little different.  I picked yellow for a color(which I had never done) and when my pedicure was over they asked if I wanted a flower on my toes.  I decided to go for it and here it is!  Problem is, that I don't know what I was thinking....I should have gotten a BLUE flower so I would have Brewers colors.  Now it just looks like I have a Summerfest flag on my feet!  OH well, at least it's timely!

1 Cup chocolate chips. I used 1/2 cup holiday mini M&M's and 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips.

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Combine cake mix, pudding, water, vegetable oil, eggs and chips or M&M's in large bowl.

Pour the batter (it's going to be thick) into a greased 10x13 baking dish. I sprayed my dish with nonstick cooking spray which worked well.

Bake your bars for 20-30 minutes (I took mine out at 25.)

It may look sort of raw in the middle but if the edges are just golden and starting to get crispy, it's probably perfect.

How I Spent My Holiday Weekend

I was busy, busy, busy this weekend!  Having fun?  No.  Getting organized?  Yes.  Went through all of Owen's baby clothes to get them ready for baby #2---which is due September 22nd.  Some call it nesting....I call it having nothing better to do!

Before and After

You may have heard me talking about the swing set we bought at Menards a few weeks ago and how my husband completely messed it up while putting it together.  He forgot an entire piece across the top.  So my father-in-law came over and helped him get it up correctly.  As you can see...the before and after...haha!

The Train Wreck I Can't Stop Watching

So I stumbled up on the reality show, "The Houstons", the other day on the Lifetime network and I have to admit...it is a total train wreck and I can't stop watching.  I watched all the episodes in two days.  It features Whitney's daughter, Bobbi Kristina(who is clearly high for many of the episodes and can barely keep her eyes open) and Whitney's brother and wife(who was her manager when she was alive).  If you ever get a chance, check it out.  Its truly fascinating and sad all at once!

Did I Mention I Won??

Well, I thought I was going to have quite a problem getting Owen to let go of the bottle, but it only took one day!  We went to the store, picked out a new cup for him and he immediately started drinking out of it when we got home.  Who knew it would be so easy??  Plus it's nice to be done washing bottles for awhile!

And...We Have A Standoff

Well, I have officially done it.  I have taken away Owen's bottles.  He is 15 months now, and the dr told me to do it when he was a year old, but I let him have it a little longer.  Either way, he is NONE to pleased with it.  I think he threw his sippy cup at me 10 times yesterday when I offered it to him with milk in it.  Funny thing is, he loves his sippy cup with water in it.  But the second I put milk in there, he knew what was up and was NOT having it.  Isn't it amazing how smart they are??  I guess the standoff will continue....

Cool Gift for V-Day

So I totally forgot to share my awesome gift from my husband that I got in November for our wedding anniversary.  But then it hit me...you can still use the gift idea for Valentine's Day!  Or Mother's Day or birthdays or....you get the point.    So, it was pretty original and made my heart melt.  It was a necklace and as you can see it has two fingerprints on it.....my husbands and my sons.  I thought it was so adorable.  Apparently, they can also do pets and the hubby didn't know this or he would have gotten our little Bella done too.  If you wanna use this gift idea, here's the Facebook of the woman that does them.  Pretty cool!

My Random Bachelor Run-In

So I went to visit my sister in California for the New Year and when I got to the airport in Cali, I noticed a guy that looked very familiar to me.  Turns out, he looked so familar because he was Ben, from The Bachelor.  Remember the one who picked that awful Courtney? Well, he was clearly trying to hide and not be noticed...too late buddy!

Congats to my hubby!

So proud of my husband, Joe, who graduated last weekend with his Masters Degree in Sports Management.  My only thought as we sat through the LONG ceremony was...why do we still let all these people speak for 20 minutes each at graduation ceremonies??  I was looking around and no one was listening.  So I say do away with all the speakers at those things!  Would make the ceremony a lot quicker!

And The Teen Mom 3 Cast Is....

It's official!  We have a cast for Teen Mom 3!  It consists of Mackenzie Douthit, Katie Yeager, Alexandria Sekella and Briana Dejesus, who all starred in their own episode of 16 & Pregnant.  There is no word yet on the official air date, but In Touch confirmed who the cast was along with other various websites.  The girls have also been throwing out hints on Twitter that make it pretty obvious they are the future cast.  I know how hard it is to remember all these chicks so if you want to see a pic of the new girls and a brief summary of their episode, click here!

Turning One Is Rough....


Well, Owen turned one yesterday!  He had a fun day going out to breakfast with grandpa, then spending the rest of the day with mommy.  At night he went out to dinner with mommy and daddy and I guess it was all too much for him because he passed out in the car ride home so we just let him sleep in his clothes.  There he is below...clearly exhausted from his 1st birthday!

Buffalo Chicken Dip Recipe

You asked for it, so you are getting it!  Here is the awesome Buffalo Chicken Dip recipe I use.  It is so freakin good!!

INGREDIENTS
  • 2 (10 ounce) cans chunk chicken, drained
  • 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup Ranch dressing
  • 3/4 cup pepper sauce (such as Frank's Red Hot®)
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  •  
  • 1 bunch celery, cleaned and cut into 4 inch pieces
  • 1 (8 ounce) box chicken-flavored crackers

Heat chicken and hot sauce in a skillet over medium heat, until heated through. Stir in cream cheese and ranch dressing. Cook, stirring until well blended and warm. Mix in half of the shredded cheese, and transfer the mixture to a slow cooker. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top, cover, and cook on Low setting until hot and bubbly. Serve with celery sticks and crackers.

I personally eat it with chips. Here is the full recipe and a picture!

Who Made The Cut?

As you probably already know, I am a HUGE Real Housewives fan.  I watch them all...New York(which is way better this season), New Jersey(Theresa sucks), Atlanta(more Kim please), Beverly Hills(Brandi Glanville was the best thing that ever happened to them) and even the O.C. and Miami.  Well, they have announced the new cast for Atlanta and Beverly Hills and some people DID NOT make the cut!  I gotta admit...I'm a little mad about who got the ax in Atlanta!

Who Won In The Ratings--The Voice Or X-Factor?

Well, the ratings are in and it looks like the winner is.....The Voice!  They beat out X-Factor on it's debut night, even with miss Britney y'all.  Preliminary numbers show that The Voice scored a total of 10.7 million viewers to The X Factor's 7.5 million.  Simon Cowell was NOT happy when The Voice decided to add another show on their debut this week.  He told Ellen DeGeneres, "We had the schedule set for months. They were going to go Monday, Tuesday. We were going to go Wednesday, Thursday. And, then they waited to the last second to announce that they were going to book a third show up against our premiere because they wanted to spoil our premiere."  The Voice's Blake Shelton rebutted, "Every time I turn around, he's mouthing off about our show. It's like, 'Do your own show! Come on! Put something together there and do your thing.' We'll just do ours and we won't mouth off about you!"

Teen Mom Spinoff

Well, Teen Mom has come to an end(the first season anyway) and I gotta admit that I'm sad!  I love that show, but I understand why you can't keep filming Teen Mom with girls in their 20's.  Now that it's over I really wanna see a spinoff for Maci and possibly Amber...even though she's locked up so that would be impossible.  Farrah bores me and Catelyn and Tyler are great, but I don't know if they have enough for their own show.  Well, with all that being said, guess who got a spinoff??  Freakin Farrah!  Ugh..there are rumors that Maci is already filiming her spinoff so I just gotta keep my fingers crossed for that one!  For all the details on Farrah's spinoff, click here!

Awkward!

This one is for all my reality show fans.....if you watched the last season of Bachelor Pad you saw Blake and Holly fall in love...even though she went on the show with her super sweet ex-fiance who was still in love her with her.  The whole thing was awesome/awkward to watch all at once, but in the end Holly and Blake tied the knot over the weekend.  Guess her adorable ex-fiance Michael is just left looking stupid and alone.  :(

It's official....Owen needs a helmet

Well, it's official...my little cutie needs to get a helmet to fix the torticollis(a.k.a. the flattening of his head from laying on it too much).  I really didn't think he was gonna need it, but the doctor said it is pretty severe so we will go in a couple weeks to get him fitted for one.  Should only have to wear it for a few months so that is good news!  And on the bright side, I KNOW there could be WAY worse things happening to him so I'm okay with it.

I Needed A Change

I am officially a brunette!  I went to get my hair cut yesterday and decided I needed a change.  I have been blonde for over ten years and decided I wanted to let that go for now.  You never know though...I may always go back to my ex...she was good to me for those ten years!  By the way, I don't even know my natural color anymore, but I'm thinking its a dirty blonde with a little red mixed in.  For some reason my hair has gotten more red as I have gotten older.

Surprise baby shower!

Well, they got me good at work!  They threw me a surprise baby shower yesterday and I got lots of cool stuff!

But I HAD to share the two gifts that our midday gal Leigh McNabb got for me....they are onesies and the first one is a Jersey Shore quote.

But let's not forget to appreciate the second one...a tribute to all you Teen Mom fans!  lol!

By the way...I'm full term today....37 weeks!  So let's hope this baby comes any day now!!

Well, I am officially 36 weeks now and am VERY ready to have this baby boy!

Obnoxious? I think yes.

Well, Kim Kardashian announced this week she is now engaged to her boyfriend of 6 months, NBA player Kris Humphries.

It came out afterward that she had gotten a $2 million ring.  I mean, really?  I don't care how much you are worth, that is just obnoxious!

Look who's pregnant AGAIN!

Yes, it's true.  One of the girls from "16 and Pregnant" is pregnant AGAIN.

Jordan Ward announced on her facebook that she is expecting again.  Her son Noah is only 17 months old.

Just to refresh your memory she was the one with the clingy twin sister who cried the whole episode because she was being "left behind."

Somebody get these kids some birth control!!!  GEEZ!

My Red Lobster Biscuit Recipe

I went to Red Lobster last night for dinner and as I was diving into the basket of those awesome biscuits, I realized that I hadn't posted MY biscuit recipe in a long time!

It's the closest thing I can find to the ones at Red Lobster and they don't disappoint!  They are yummy! And super easy!

Oh...and I learned through trial and error that Parchment paper is necessary!  So make sure you use it!

Ingredients



Garlic Butter:



  • 1/2 stick unsalted butter, melted

  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/8 teaspoon dried parsley flakes


Directions




Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Combine the biscuit mix and cheese in a small bowl. Add the water and stir just until combined. The dough will be slightly moist. Drop the dough by tablespoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes, until the biscuits are firm and beginning to brown.

While the biscuits are baking, make the garlic butter. In a small bowl, combine the butter, garlic powder, salt, and parsley flakes. Mix well. As soon as you bring the biscuits from the oven, brush them with the garlic butter using a pastry brush

SO Not Funny.

So when I got to work this morning I ran to the back of my car to grab my umbrella and that's when I saw it.

SOMEONE had put a "baby on board" sticker on my car.  Now, while I see why someone would think this was funny, I DO NOT.  You ever tried to get a sticker off your car??

I'm almost positive it was my husband and all I can say is...he better stay outta my way!!

Did you know it takes place in Milwaukee??

So I went to see Bridesmaids yesterday and I was shocked to see that the whole movie takes place in Milwaukee!

Now, it's obvious they didn't film it here, but they make lots of refrences to our city and even show some shots of the Milwaukee Public Market and the Art Museum.

And yes...it was a riot!

Barf

Well, I hope you had a happy Mother's Day!  It appears that Amber Portwood from Teen Mom spent the day with her baby daddy Gary Shirley.  The two are still on-again off-again(shocking, I know).

There really are just no words.   Oh wait, yes there are.  BARF!

What is she thinking?

If you are a big fan of The Hills like I was, you will totally appreciate this.

Turns out that Heidi Montag's sister, Holly, has been dating Justin Bobby for awhile now!

It's not extremely serious but its been going on awhile according to friends.  WTH?

You go girl

Jordin Sparks put a picture of herself up in a bikini on Twitter yesterday.  Turns out that she has lost 30 pounds after she started working out with a trainer during her tour with the Jonas Brothers.

I think she looks great! (And for the record I thought it was weird at first that she put a pic of herself in a bikini up, but the weight loss thing makes it WAY less awkward.)

I finally figured it out!



So I have been watching The Real World Las Vegas(AWESOME season by the way) and I couldn't figure out who Nany reminded me of.  And then it hit me!  Freida Pinto from Slumdog Millionare.  Nany is on the right and Freida is on the right in the picture of the three girls.

They really could be twins!

Forget that Nany is dumb as rocks....she is definitely beautiful!

This is why you don't marry your grandpa

Here is a pic of Hugh Hefner with his fiance and another woman at Disneyland.

Sorry, but if your man needs one of these to get around, you MIGHT be marrying someone way too old.  Gross.

Ummm.....drugs or chocolate? You be the judge.

So pictures have emerged of Vanessa Hudgens partying this weekend at the annual Coachella music festival in California.

Unfortunatly for her, some of the pics show her with a white substance on her fingers that one would THINK is drugs.

Her rep is claiming it is white chocolate.  haha...RIGHT!

You looked way better before

Well, I am a HUGE fan of The Real Housewives.   And that means all of them....O.C., Atlanta, New Jersey, New York....I even gave D.C. and Miami a chance even though they sucked!

Anyway, you may have seen Jill Zarin from New York lately.  I just don't get it.  The top pic is her before and the bottom one is her now.  Does she really think she looks better??

She says she has a liquid face lift every six months.  I don't care about that.  I just need someone to fire her hair person for giving her the Madonna 'Vogue Era' bun on her head with the weave!  It's just wrong!

Another Twist to the Story!

Okay, so the plot has thickened with Aaron Rodgers girlfriend.  Turns out that not only is her name Destiny Newton, but she is the sister of Shawntel from the Bachelor!

You can totally tell by looking at them but their mom has been speaking out about her daughter's relationship with Aaron.  Here's what she said:

"They are boyfriend and girlfriend.  They have been best friends for nine years. They met at church camp."

According to RadarOnline, Destiny is currently living at home and working toward a B.A. in Communications at California State University in Chico. Despite the rumors linking Aaron to Jessica Szohr from Gossip Girl, Mom said, “Aaron and Destiny have a strong relationship.”

Okay then!  But I can guarantee you that Rahny saw Aaron and Jessica sitting courtside at a Bucks game and claimed they were definitely a couple!

Mariah Carey must be bored

Mariah Carey put a picture of her belly on Twitter yesterday.  Obviously she is having twins, a boy and a girl, and that is why her belly is red and blue.

I think she and Nick need to pick up a hobby!

Real Housewife Husband Arrested Again

Trouble has come knocking again at the doors of Theresa and Joe Giudice.

He was arrested on Friday after he was pulled over.  Turns out his license is currently suspended and he fraudulently obtained a new one in June using his brother's identity.

The charges, if successfully prosecuted, could result in up to 10 years in prison on the misappropriation-of-ID charge. A forgery conviction can carry an 18-months' sentence.

Giudice's license was initially suspended as a result of a Jan. 14, 2010, DUI incident that ended with him crashing into a telephone pole. Caught driving in violation of that suspension, he served a brief jail sentence last Sept. 21.

Yet between these two dates, Passaic County law officials allege, Giudice took the time to visit the Motor Vehicle Office in Paterson, N.J., and, using his brother's information, obtain a false license. The guy just can't stay out of trouble!

Chris Brown Goes Crazy On GMA Set

TMZ just broke a story about Chris Brown going crazy this morning and losing it on the set of Good Morning America.

Apparently, Robin Roberts was interviewing him and asking questions about Rihanna when he became upset.  As soon as the interview was over he stormed into his dressing room screaming and yelling before breaking a window.

He ripped his shirt off and stormed out before security could get to him.

Another Teen Mom Star Pregnant

Well, maybe pregnancy really is contagious.  Looks like Megan, Chelsea's BFF and former roommate is prego.

She announced on Twitter that she is expecting her first child in 121 days with her boyfriend, Cody.

But she claims that she is NOT "16 and Pregnant".  Because she's 19.  Okay then.

GOOD MORNING!!!!

I just had to post this picture of my dog Bella because it cracks me up.  This is what I woke up to this weekend.

She is laying her head on my chest so when I woke up and looked down I just started laughing.

If you could read her mind what would she be saying?  I think it's something like, "MOMMY...take me out!"

Before you open your mouth....check your facts.

We were talking about this website this morning and it is a great way to fact check all the things that you hear about politicians.

It shows both sides, so there is no bias and it is quite interesting!  Go check it out for yourself!

Teen Mom 2 Star Arrested

Looks like the drama continues on one of my favorite shows...and I love it!

Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn claims she may be filing for custody of her son Isaac after her baby daddy Jonathan "Jo" Rivera was arrested last week for pot.

She says she hasn't made up her mind yet, but may be filing for full custody.

These two are a complete train wreck!

Charlie Sheen has been spotted out and about a lot lately and this picture really grossed me out.  Look how bad he looks!  His skin is a mess and he just looks OLD.

The life we will never live....

Every now and then I like to sit down with my hot chocolate, cuddle up to the computer and stalk some celebrities.  Well, today I give to you.....the house stalking!!

Here are a few celebrity houses that will make you feel bad about yourself(along with my thoughts on them)but I'm warning you...look at your own risk.

1. Here is Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon's pad in Beverly Hills.  My thought is....what is with the trampoline??  They don't have kids yet!



2. This is Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz's house in Beverly Hills.  How on earth did they afford such an amazing pad??

3. This is Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban's house in Beverly Hills.  I dig the pool.  That is all.

4. Here is Michael Vartan's house in the Hollywood Hills.  I think the pool is pretty neat. You don't see round in-ground pools that often.

Say what???

So I was sitting at the airport last night waiting patiently in the cell phone waiting lot and I was trying to kill time so I was playing around on my phone when I ran upon a story on onmilwaukee.com about Oprah being in the Third Ward this weekend!

It was really cool because apparently she stopped into Swig around 4 p.m. to have a bite to eat with her half-sister and several other people.

They stayed until about 6 p.m. when Oprah jumped into the Escalade(see left) waiting for her outside.

I love celebrity sightings!  Good stuff!!

Trip #5,008,786,345,567

Yes, I went on another trip last month!

I joke about it because I get so much heat for how much my husband and I travel!  But I always tell people...I'm doing it...not just talking about it!  :)

Well, this time we went to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico and I have to say it was BEAUTIFUL!

I honestly wasn't a fan of the beach beacause the sand was pretty coarse and the water was WAY too cold to swim, but the mountains were amazing.   Here are a few pics for ya!

How Come Nobody Told Me?

I had to give Rahny a  good talking to this morning on the air after watching the Milwaukee Bucks game on ESPN last night.

How come nobody told me how hot some of the players are this year??  I was taking a liking to #10 Carlos Delfino.  Holy hot!

Somebody lock her up!

Haha...okay, I'm only joking.  This is Maci from Teen Mom bonging a beer on vacation.

Yea, she is underage and has a kid, but are we really gonna pretend like nobody under 21 is drinking nowadays?

Oh well, maybe I just like her too much too judge her for this.  Or MAYBE I have done one too many beer bongs myself.  ha!
